Lifting up stories from across the state is critical to building connections, forging a stronger congregational community, and helping others grow. Has Center for Congregations helped you navigate a challenge or opportunity? Please share your story with us.
As we approach another contentious election season, many congregational members will begin discussing what faithfulness looks like at the ballot box. Instead of asking the questions, “Who should we vote for?” or “What policies should we support?” this event will address the practices and habits that can shape us into the kind of individuals capable of engaging faithfully in our political world without losing our souls.
